The latest release rumor comes from Chipell’s Editor-in-Chief, Napoleon, says NVIDIA is actually ahead of the curve with its GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards. It is reported that RTX 4090 indeed, it will be shown at GTC 2022 and the card will go on sale in October, something we reported in June. Interestingly, the editor also states that RTX 4080 It will launch in November, a month after the RTX 4090, which is what we’re told in our exclusive a few months ago.
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Graphics Card – October 2022
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Graphics Card – November 2022 Release
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Graphics Card – December 2022 launch
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Graphics Card – Launched January CES 2023
But that’s not the only new information we’ve got. Our sources also pointed out that the GeForce RTX 4080 will get two variants, one 16GB and the other 12GB model. we have heard these rumors before however, based on the information provided to us, it appears that the 16GB model will have a reference TGP of 340W, while the 12GB model will have a reference TGP of 285W. This could mean that the specs between the two models will be very different, as we’re talking about a 20 percent difference in watts alone.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16GB GDDR6X variant is expected to use a 12-layer PCB, while the other variant has a 12GB GDDR6X VRAM configuration and a 10-layer PCB design. The first card will focus primarily on the AIC and Reference design, while the second model will be an AIC-only variant.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 12GB is also rumored to use a different PCB than the RTX 4080 16GB variant. Now if we compare this to NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3080 lineup, we can see that the green team also has two variants of the previous cards, one with a 10GB configuration that launched in 2020, and another with 12GB of memory that was launched this year. 2022. The second variant was limited to AIC models only and never saw a Founders Edition release. AICs dictated the card’s pricing, as did NVIDIA’s official MSRP listed at launch. But the memory configuration wasn’t the only thing that changed between the two cards.
